Antique Turkish Kilim 50275
Antique Turkish Kilim, 1900 — Immediately, the viewer’s eye is drawn to the zig-zagging waves of motion that create depth and attraction along the surrounding borders of this striking antique rug. The white zig-zags that cut into the middle of the frames create transition and contrast between the two halves of beige and dusky brown. At the center of the piece is a background of stony gray, creating an almost ethereal presence that permeates and adds depth and character to the surrounding leaves and shapes. Soft creams, cinnamon browns and ruby reds dance together, adding to the almost mystical charm present throughout this kilim.
